Rosiglitazone has been used:
  • as a medium constituent for adipocyte differentiation
  • in the cell proliferation assay in human colonic carcinoma cell lines
  • for Bcl-2-like protein 13 (Bcl2l13) expression in adipocytes
  • as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) ligand


10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Rosiglitazone is a potent agonist for PPARγ with an EC50 of 43 nM for the human receptor. It is antidiabetic, working as an insulin sensitizer by binding to the PPARγ receptors in fat cells and making the cells more responsive to insulin.

Promoting white-to-beige adipocyte transition is a promising approach for obesity treatment. Although Liensinine (Lie), a kind of isoquinoline alkaloid, has been reported to affect white-to-beige adipocyte transition, its effects on inhibiting beige adipocytes recovering to white adipocytes and maintaining the

A general protocol for the selective mono-O-methylation of resorcinyl phytocannabinoids was developed. The availability of semisynthetic monomethyl analogues of cannabigerol, cannabidiol, and cannabidivarin (1A: -3A: , respectively) made it possible to quantify these minor phytocannabinoids in about 40 different chemotypes

Neutrophils have been traditionally recognized as major mediators of a deleterious inflammatory response in acute ischemic stroke, but their potential as a therapeutic target remains unexplored. Recent evidence indicates that neutrophils may acquire different phenotypes and contribute to resolution of
